ERJ staff report (DS)
Las Vegas, Nevada -- At this year's SEMA show, Schrader is launching the EZ-Sensor, described as the automotive industry's first patented OE-replacement TPMS sensor that can be programmed to function across diverse car makes and models.
EZ-Sensor uses patented Schrader technology, which delivers a programmable sensor that requires only a single programming tool - a tool that most service and repair facilities already use today.
Currently, there are more than 150 SKUs of tyre sensors fitted to North American vehicles equipped with TPMS. This can mean money tied up in inventory for sensors that are rarely used or long waits in the service bay waiting for the right sensor to be delivered. With today's launch, one (1) EZ-Sensor SKU covers more than 60 percent of TPMS-enabled vehicles in the US, supporting vehicle platforms such as Ford, Chrysler, GM, Toyota, Nissan, Honda and more. Schrader will eventually introduce one (1) additional SKU during its roll-out process, with a goal of having the two (2) EZ-Sensor SKUs cover an estimated 90 percent of the market by the end of third-quarter, 2011, if not sooner.
